I am a regular at Cine Thissio, ever since I was old enough to go to the cinema. My grandma used to take me there in the 70s. I can not be objective since I go there at least once a month , every summer , so, I will point out some things that may spoil someno's experience.
1.Dear all , remember, it's an open air cinema and it's my right to have a smoke .
2. The queue at the ticket booth may seem long,but the staff are really fast in processing all the crowd.
3. Have in mind that once inside the very same queue will migrate at the bar. Don't waste your time fretting nad let the film begin. As soon there is a gap in the film action run inside and grab the beer , snack etc. of your choice . Do try the freshly baked cheesepies.
4.Do not bother if you had a beer too many.There is always a 10 minute interval. Use it to "download" in the WC AND reload at the bar .
5.It's a family run business and the cinema was established sometime in the 30s. Also , locals like us ( as I have already mentioned aBove) go there on a regular basis. Do not act "too touristy". (sic). Let everyone enjoy the film . Acropolis is not going anywhere.
6. I totally agree with Emmi12345 that mentions Lontos .Good prices, decent cuisine that used to be called "international" , fast service. I would also suggest the cafe-bars opposite of Lontos if you only want to drink something, along with a light snack.
7. Have in mind that senior citizens over 65 ( I do not , REPEAT DO NOT, know if it's only for Greeks) pay € 6,00 every day . I know that for children it's € 6,00 for every little one.
Enough said, I'm going to enjoy seeing "Elysium" there tomorrow Friday with a friend. Perfect for Athens at 38.C
